  • From Mutualized Exchange to Investor-Owned Demutualized Entity: The Case
           of Pakistan Stock Exchange

    • Authors: Saqib Sharif
      Pages: 01 - 08
      Abstract: This study provides an overview of the Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX) journey from not-for-profit mutually owned company to the for-profit demutualized entity. The wave of demutualization and public listing of stock markets around the globe is being witnessed for the last three decades. This study focuses on three main areas. First, in 2012, the stock market stood corporatized and demutualized as a public company limited by shares. Prior to 2012, the PSX (formerly called Karachi stock exchange) was a broker-owned company. The three national stock exchanges of Pakistan merged together to form PSX in January 2016. Moreover, the 40% strategic ownership of PSX is transferred to the Chinese investors. The Pakistan stock market is listed on its own exchange from June 29, 2017 (self-listing) following the IPO process. Second, this study discusses the reasons for demutualization, such as investment in technology and global competition; and regulatory implications of for-profit demutualized exchange. Lastly, selected market efficiency indicators are compared before and after integration to assess the benefit of demutualization. On a positive note, so far, the market witnessed higher liquidity, less excessive volatility, and better returns for investors in the post-merger period compared to pre-merger period.

  • Implementation of Microsoft SQL Server using ‘AlwaysOn’ for High
           Availability and Disaster Recovery without Shared Storage

    • Authors: Zulqarnain Hayat, Tariq Rahim Soomro
      Pages: 09 - 17
      Abstract: It is important for any organization to handle increase in data; normally this is the job of the DBA in organization to take care of this data growth, along with its protection and its availability.  High availability of data is also most important for organizations, for that purpose, shared storage is usually the solution, for example, SAN or NAS storage as Microsoft Cluster Database instances. Mostly Organization does not have shared storage in their infrastructure, which was required for Microsoft cluster SQL database instance; due to that they used other native methods to implement like log shipping or database mirroring, which was not efficient method for high-availability and disaster-recovery solution.  After that, Microsoft introduced native method called SQL AlwaysOn method that could be implemented without using SAN and NAS storage method to implement high availability and disaster recovery without using shared storage.  SQL AlwaysOn option is using only Microsoft cluster service and shared folder between the nodes. This paper written for DBA and System Administrators; and is implementation of Microsoft SQL Database tier step by step.

  • Express TV: Competing In a Cluttered World of Media for Consumer
           Preferences and Viewership Patterns

    • Authors: Saeed ur Rehman, Syed Amir Saeed, Shahnawaz Khan, Ovais Mufti, Asfiya Ahmad, Taimoor Sultan
      Pages: 18 - 32
      Abstract: Express News TV Channel found some reports that their TV channel viewership was declining. In Pakistan, however, the viewership data is managed, still the system is not properly managed and has many loopholes. This can be imagined through the information that one of the most populated area of Karachi, Gulshan Iqbal, TV viewing patterns are evaluated through less than ten people meters. Express news therefore decided to conduct a full survey that included the viewership patterns, the most preferred TV shows, and hosts, morning shows, and anchors. The study revealed interesting facts about the standing of Express News programs and TV viewers’ preferences of the same.

  • Consumer Willingness to Use Digital Coupons: A Case of Karachi Market in
           Pakistan

    • Authors: Kazi Afaq Ahmed, Zainab Sarwar
      Pages: 33 - 42
      Abstract: The coupon concept since its emergency in 1887 in US as marketing tool has gained lot of popularity in US market and emerged as effective marketing tool in South Asian Market. Unlike Indian and US Markets, the uptake of coupons has been very slow in Pakistan. This study aimed to check consumer willingness to use mobile coupons in Pakistan revealed that the interest and usage of mobile applications is growing with each day. People are willing to convert from traditional to digital platforms, similar to what we have noticed in the secondary research. Hi-Tec HHD devices are expanding throughout along with the usage. This research showed that the people are fond of downloading free mobile apps, which are mainly social, and gaming apps and a very small portion of the audience downloads paid apps (high-end market). It has been analyzed that the 50% of the audience would like to download a paid coupons app, which offers buy one get one free but there is a small portion of the population who is willing to spend Rs.4500 on purchasing the coupons book like Vouch365. There is a great potential for a business in Pakistan for the companies like Entertain Asia to penetrate into the market.

    • Authors: Syed Sartaj Qasim, Tauseef Qureshi
      Pages: 43 - 50
      Abstract: This case study describes the process of developing and implementing a strategy to control costs and reduce losses on account of frauds, accounting errors, wrong payments, etc., at the worldwide outstations of an airline where traditional oversight methods had fallen short of management expectations. By identifying the systemic weaknesses in various areas of station disbursement accounting arising out of lack of training, non-availability of important corporate policies and management directives and lack of standard procedures for preparing and dispatching disbursement reports to head office, a comprehensive Stations Disbursement Manual was developed to train and empower the managers at stations to control and release payments in a responsible manner.

      Pages: 73 - 83
      Abstract: It seems challenging to detect the beneficiary students of the Academic Paid Writing Services, which refers to a practice in which authors or students appoint professional writers to produce scholarly work (including research papers,  university assignments, research reports, and so on)  with a predefined style. This study aimed to explore the factors leading the students in higher education to choose the paid Academic Writing Services (PAWS), which affects their performance and personal development due to contract cheating and make them realize that learning is better than grades as through self-explorations only a person can get something better. By employing quantitative approach to obtain information associated with PAWS, data was gathered from 117 business students enrolled in six Higher Education Institutes in Karachi, Pakistan, using adopted questionnaire having close-ended questions with 5-point Likert scale, measuring students’ attitude towards class assignments, their awareness about plagiarism, and their attitude about academic paid writing services. The results revealed that male students were more inclined towards paid writing services than their counterpart female students were and the increase in Students’ Attitude towards Assignments brought the increase academic paid writing services. Therefore, academic professionals servicing in universities are recommended to take due care of the two factors to prevent the increased paid academic wiring services.

  • Mitigating Risk of Failure by Expanding Family Entrepreneurship and
           Learning from International Franchising Experiences of Johnny Rockets: A
           Case Study in Pakistan

    • Authors: Jawaid Ahmed Qureshi, Muhammad Shahid Qureshi, Muhammad Asif Qureshi
      Pages: 110 - 127
      Abstract: It is generally believed worldwide and backed by research too that startups face a high risk of failure and eight to nine out of ten ideas may not work (Hisrich, Peters, & Shepherd, 2009). However, many experts claim that the situation can turn vice versa for family entrepreneurship (or creative family businesses) and franchise ventures (Francorp, 2016). This exploratory probe aims to discover these two phenomena for Johnny Rockets (JR) Pakistan, which is an international franchise of fast food chain of restaurants, and simultaneously it is a family business extension. Literature is reviewed from four perspectives: family entrepreneurship and business, franchise business, internationalization of companies, and fast food restaurant industry in Pakistan. Primary data is garnered from three sources: in-depth interviews from middle to top management of Johnny Rockets, owners of the franchises, and from its consumers in accordance with phenomenology method and purposive sampling to analyze their lived experiences with JR and its direct rivals. The data analytic techniques comprise thematic analysis and constant comparison. The findings unveil that in the wake of tolerating several difficulties, now Johnny Rockets seems to be on the right path of sustainable growth. The study underpins the notions that family entrepreneurship and franchise ventures enjoy a high probability of success, but it requires an organizational culture of the congenial work environment, and propensity to create a customer-centric modern learning organization, ready to accept trials and errors and continuously innovating its processes and systems.
